We would like to invite you to voting in the case of the proposed Deletion
policy for wiki pages and files [1].

As you might have noticed, there were conflicts based on requests to delete
wiki pages and especially drafts of proposals. One of the arguments in
favour of deletion was avoiding confusion and clutter. The other side
argued basically that they wanted to keep everything as all of the
fragments ensemble OpenStreetMap's history. Based on the input of several
contributors, we drafted a deletion policy over the span of two and a half
months.

Among other things, the policy proposes a centralised discussion page for
all cases which are not mentioned explicitly.

Kind regards,
Tigerfell
